good to be with you. i'm anne-marie green. well, the senate is expected to vote today on a bill to avoid a government shutdown, but republicans in the house say they aren't willing to compromise and will reject the stop gap budget measure. all this is setting the stauj for a nail-biting weekend on capitol hill as attitude's deadline for a government shutdown quickly approaches. susan mcginnis is in washington with more. susan, good morning. >> anne-marie, good morning. this is all about obama care, getting rid of the health care law is inside this bill that the senate is voting on today. house republicans put it in there. they said we'll fund the government if obama care is dead. now, the senate is supposed to take that bill, take out the obama care provision, send it back to the house. what happens after that is anybody's guess and that's why we are now facing yet another budget showdown. the senate will likely vote yes on a bill to keep the government operating through mid-november, averting a shutdown at moment
monday. lawmakers will remove part of the bill that kills obama care, something that house republicans demand. >> will you now accept a clean c.r. to avoid a government shutdown? >> i do not see that happening. there's said to be considering a one-year delay of the health care law or repealing the tax on a medical device that helps fund it. >> there will be options avail toab to us. there will not be speculate about what we do or do not do until they pass the bill. they insist they won't negotiate while the clock tick downs to a partial government shutdown. >> we we're going to have a clean c.r. that's what we're going to have. that's what we're going to vote for. we're not going to play games. >> reporter: they say you should get rid of all talk of the obama health care. >> you can huff and you can puff
for 21 hours but you cannot blow the affordable health care act away. cruz also blocked an attempt to speed up the vote on funding the government, a move that angered even some republicans. >> but i'm understanding the reason we're waiting is that you all have sent out releases and e-mails and you want everybody to be able to watch. >> reporter: as the deadline approaches workers will get notices today to let them know if they'll be working during a shutdown or whether they'll be furloughed. >> the leadership there is already trying a new strategy, trying to push for a one-year delay in obama care as the price for raising the debt limit, that deadline is coming up october 17th. anne-marie? >> hopefully something positive happens over the weekend. susan mcginnis in washington. thank you. now to syria. the security council has agreed on a resolution. the entire 15-member council

[ sally ] my antidepressant worked hard to help with my depression.
but sometimes, i still struggled to get going, even get through the day. so i was honest with my doctor. i told her i'd been feeling stuck for a long time. she said that for some people, an antidepressant alone only helps so much and suggested we add abilify (aripiprazole). she said that by taking both, some people had symptom improvement as early as 1 to 2 weeks. i wish i'd talked to my doctor sooner. [ female announcer ] abilify is not for everyone. call your doctor if your depression worsens or you have unusual changes in behavior, or thoughts of suicide. antidepressants can increase these in children, teens and young adults. elderly dementia patients taking abilify have an increased risk of death or stroke. call your doctor if you have high fever, stiff muscles and confusion to address a possible life-threatening condition. or if you have uncontrollable muscle movements, as these could become permanent. high blood sugar has been reported with abilify and medicines like it and in extreme cases can lead to coma or death.
other risks include increased cholesterol, weight gain, decreases in white blood cells, which can be serious, dizziness on standing, seizures, trouble swallowing, and impaired judgment or motor skills.
